Lunch and Learn: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Autism

July 20 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

We’re excited to welcome educators, as well, to a conversation on employer understanding of “neurodiversity” as it applies to DEI – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
The virtual meeting will be moderated by Good Friend, Inc. (GFI) co-founders Chelsea Budde and Denise Schamens, both mothers to neurodivergent young adults. GFI board director and autistic advocate Sarah Russell also contributes invaluable perspective to the discussion.
Topics include:
– The concept of neurodiversity .
– Why hiring autistic workers is a sound business practice .
– How Good Friend, Inc. can help companies be inclusive of adults on the autism spectrum.
If your company would like to enhance its DEI focus, bring your lunch for a casual time of open learning and sharing. Register to reserve your spot for this timely discussion.

Event is FREE, but registration is required:
